Lucy, the reason I was using the .htaccess path was because in my admin panel I have no recourse to use custom links - everything in my permalinks settings in this format -
Day and name [examplesite.com...]
Month and name [examplesite.com...]
Post name [examplesite.com...]
Custom Structure [examplesite.com...]
I was told that the .htaccess was the way to go. Whatever happened, I am looking for some kind of solution.
I can easily understand your point about the .htaccess file being a patch, only this sort of thing isn't always clear to someone who is new to the ideas behind Apache. It has been an informative experience - only as with all things code, extremely frustrating as nothing is logical. Or better said, the reasoning behind the code is always different (thus appears illogical).
